Subject:Best way to monitor kismet_server remotely
Date:19:26:50 02/06/2006

Hey there,

I'm setting up a server with kismet_server among its services. The box runs apache wich is mostly used to monitor processes like apache itself, ssh, etc with munit (see http://munin.ping.uio.no/ if you want to know more about monit).

I'd like to add kismet to the list, this way I could easily start/stop kismet_server remotely from the web (without the need to ssh into the box), check for errors, etc.

Is there expert with monit?
This it what I added to /etc/monit/monitrc but it doesn't work

check process kismet with pidfile /var/run/kismet_server.pid
group wireless
start program = "/usr/local/bin/kismet_server"
stop program = "killall kismet_server"
if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout

but it doesn't work.. any other ideas?
